After less than six hours of charging in direct sunlight, the Mona solar light, developed by Solar 21, can produce light for up to five hours. Using new LED power technology and photovoltaic panels, this environmentally friendly light guarantees dense interior lighting. The Mona solar light will be showcased at the World Climate Solutions trade fair in Copenhagen at the end of September.
While traditional solar lights for external use are often viewed as markers rather than lighting appliances, this product, which is intended for internal use, completely transforms the notion of wireless lighting inside the home. Besides, the Mona solar light resists high temperatures and is fitted with an integrated mobile-telephone charger. It also comes in a convenient compact case.
The Mona solar light has been designed in response to a vital need from countries whose populations are affected by irregular power supply. With 1.7 billion people in the world still deprived of access to the electricity grid, this clean and effective solar light offers a genuine, practical and lasting solution.
Solar 21 was set up by Edgar Hardy, who himself originally comes from Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, in Central Africa. This invention marks a big step forward for the African continent, whose populations often do not enjoy the benefit of reliable private lighting.
Edgar Hardy, who studied at Ecole Centrale, the prestigious school of engineering based in Paris (France), is now looking for partners with an approach similar to his, in order to ensure that the Mona solar light develops into a lasting solution in Africa, in Europe, and across the globe. Indeed, Solar 21 intends to become the leading manufacturer and distributor of clean lighting products across the African continent.
A full specification sheet for the Mona solar light has been reproduced at the bottom of this press release.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
